How ya living today friends? Mr. Hungry sent me this facebook video a few days ago, and I can’t get it out of my head! (I also found it here on YouTube.) I was going to wait till Friday to share it, but I seriously can’t get it out of my head.
In 10 minutes Rick Risby’s shares some profound knowledge from his father “the third-grade dropout” that will stop you dead in your tracks. However, the piece that stood out most to me was the “How ya living?”
That simple question is a good reminder that we are in control of how we live our lives. The question doesn’t say “how is life treating you?” But rather, how are you living your life? It’s a profound difference.
The other day my 52 Lists of Happiness book asked me to write down the things I actually had control over in my life. I think that may have been the most eye-opening list I’ve ever made in my life.
Personally, I wrote down the following things: my diet, my attitude/emotions, how clean my house/environment is, the quality of work I produce, the debt I obtain, the income I make, the hours I sleep, my happiness, my commitments, and my faith.
I feel like I can sum that up to I can control the cleanliness of my environment, how well I take care of myself, how hard I work, and my life outlook. To me, those are the answers to the question “How ya living?” There are a lot of things in our lives we can’t control, but it seems to me that we can control the things that matter the most, which again, for me is a mind-blowing concept.
For some people, positivity and optimism come naturally. For others, like me, we had to learn what positivity was. Then, I had to learn to fight for it every single day.
Certain events challenge me more than others. Physical pain from injuries has always been the biggest struggle for me. With my recent back flare due to flying too much last month, I fear the worst, that I won’t’ recover or it will take two more years to recover like it did the last time.
It’s easy to let those thoughts consume me if I let them, especially because working out is a stress outlet for me. I can work out whatever is bothering or give myself a boost of confidence with just a 30-minute run or HIIT session.
Without exercise, it’s harder to get out of my head. It’s a more challenging fight to stay positive. Recently, the words of that speech keep running through my head, “how ya living?” It’s a reminder for me to make the most of today because today will not repeat itself, you can’t get it back.
I just wanted to share that, because I know I’m not the only one going through something tough. Whether it’s physical or emotional pain you are suffering from, I hope you find motivation like I have to ask yourself “How ya living?” What can you control? What can you let go of so that you can live today in the best way possible?
